This research therefore looks at the unforeseen risks and impacts of the rapid responses, especially in relation to urban transport due to the COVID-19 pandemic that affected the mobility of urban women with low income. In line with UKAID priorities, the geographic focus is on low-income countries, or women with lowincome in middle-income countries, particularly within Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The research has focused on Lagos and Abuja (Nigeria), Johannesburg and Cape Town (South Africa), Nairobi and Kisumu (Kenya), and Kampala (Uganda). The research also makes suggestions on short- and longer-term interventions to drive gender equity goals and impacts.
